Ascent Trip Report

Hard pack, but not icy. Microspikes worked fine, however the second half of this trail is very steep and Crampons would be even better. Snowshoes will be required if it gets warmer or more snow.

For the descent...well the 2 guys in front of me butt-slided, so did I. At times was able to pick-up some pretty good speed, be careful not to go flying off trail. Definately the most fun descent I've had.
